    Set up your work surface. To prevent a mess, lay out newspaper or kraft paper, then position watercolor paper in your desired size on top. Cut the potato in half using a serrated knife for a circular shape. Cut in half again for a half-circle shape, or trim to other desired stamp shapes. Use a small paint brush to cover the cut side of the potato with a generous amount of crafts paint.

  2. Stamp and Repeat

    Press firmly onto watercolor paper and lift. Repeat across entire sheet, using varying paint colors and consistency. Set aside to dry.
